Deployed employees keep benefits at Michigan military contractor

Over the past five years, 74 of government contractor ArvinMeritor’s 525 employees have taken military leaves of absence—and most of them got to keep most of their employee benefits while they were gone.

The Troy, Mich.-based firm pays the difference between military pay and the employee’s salary so the family can maintain its standard of living while a spouse is deployed. Plus, employees receiving the pay differential continue to earn savings-plan benefits while they’re gone.

Employees on military leave can elect to maintain their company benefits package while they’re on leave, and they continue to accrue vacation time.

CEO Chip McClure, a former naval officer, stays in touch with employees-turned-service members while they’re gone. “It’s a rewarding way to sustain and encourage them while they’re serving, and to welcome them back and thank them for their service when they return.”
